Do you like pasta?
The shortest and most popular answer is: Yesss, I do!
Honestly, I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t like this incredible food. In my household, we eat pasta at least twice or thrice a week and no, I don’t come from an Italian family; it’s just that my dad is an avid fan of pasta – he could even ditch my mom or his ten-year-old poster of Beyonce for pasta.
But, I don’t blame him; most of us are so fond of pasta that we could eat it all day, right? I mean, it’s budget-friendly, versatile, convenience, has a long shelf-life and is super delicious.
Eating mac and cheese with your family is a tradition, but every pasta lover dreams of savoring well-executed pasta classics with high-end ingredients such as smoked trout roc or shaved truffles in a fancy restaurant.
To save you from an expensive trip to Italy, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best places where you can enjoy a whole plethora of amazing pasta dishes that champion ingredients and fine cuisine.
Misi – New York
I don’t know how many pasta dishes you’ve eaten, but you haven’t really lived until you’ve tasted the handmade pasta dishes made by this contemporary-chic restaurant. While there might be endless options for pasta dining spaces in New York, you can’t go past Misi.
Thanks to the devotional owner, Missy, a simple workspace became a pasta-making lab.
The Sicilian Butcher – Phoenix
Traditional pasta and fresh meatballs? Ah, yes, everyone’s favorite!

N10 Restaurant – Los Angeles
A slick modern setting with an intimate fun vibe and combined with great ambiance and aesthetics is the perfect place to enjoy authentic Italian pasta dishes.
Nestled in the home of the rich and famous, N10 restaurant literally screams sophisticated, genuine and Italian.
Whether it’s for an after-work happy hour bites, a celebratory event, a casual encounter with friends or a romantic date (lucky you!), N10 is the go-to spot in town. I promise you’ll explode with pleasure (not that kind of pleasure, you dirty-mind!) once you taste the exquisite and creatively-crafted pasta dishes and the cocktail menu of the restaurant.
Union Pasadena – Los Angeles
Humble and simple, yet unforgettable, Union Pasadena is a local favorite.
Their Italian dishes are always rated 10/10. Their pasta are always cooked to perfection, meats bursting with flavor and each bite feels like heaven. Their torchetti is also stellar. Adorned with Calabrese pork ragu, crispy rosemary leaves, ricotta and dried chile oil, this dish is so silky and delicious that you ought to get a foodgasm!
San Fermo – Seattle
I don’t even have words to explain how tender and savory the rigatoni of this traditional Italian eating place was.
My all-time favorite is linguine pasta dancing with cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and parmesan cheese. However, one bite of the restaurant’s rigatoni mixed with chives, sour cream and vodka sauce, and I swear you’ll be ordering 50 g, 100 g or even 150 g portions more.
Giacome’s Boston North End – Boston
When in Boston, it’s a crime – the worst of crimes – not to try the tasty-as-hell fettuccini with peas and prosciutto, pasta with shrimp in a pesto cream sauce and seafood linguine of this charming restaurant.
PennePazze – Nashville
Nashville is not only the city of country music, but also of Amatriciana, a simple yet the tastiest pasta dish that you could ever place in your mouth.
Made with homemade tomato sauce, a myriad of spices and fresh pancetta, Amatriciana, is the signature dish of PennePazze.
